CIA names fallen officer 6 years after death
When Gregg Wenzel died six years ago in Ethiopia, the obituaries said he was a U.S. Foreign Service officer killed by a drunken driver on the streets of Addis Ababa.
Monday the public learned the State Department job was a cover for his real occupation: CIA spy.
At a ceremony commemorating those who died in the line of duty, CIA
Director Leon Panetta revealed Wenzel's affiliation with the agency
and noted Wenzel was a member of the first clandestine service class
to graduate after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
